Summary/Abstract: Active ageing is firmly established as the leading global policy strategy response to population ageing. In practice, however, the term ‘active ageing’ provides a convenient slogan for a wide range of policy discourses and initiatives concerning the impact of demographic change, only some of which are worthy of the label. In particular, a productivist ideology which reduces active ageing to working longer has come to dominate these discourses.
